The remarkable true story of Darius McCollum, a man with Asperger's syndrome whose overwhelming love of transit has landed him in jail 32 times for impersonating New York City bus drivers and subway conductors and driving their routes. Over three decades, Darius commandeered hundreds of trains and buses, staying en route and on schedule, without ever getting paid. He attended transit worker union meetings, lobbying for better pay and working conditions.

For me this was hard to watch.
Darious starts his life as a promising student who is bullied and almost dies as a child in the New York public school system. He ends up fleeing into the subways where he finds safety, acceptance and trains. And that's pretty much how he spends the rest of his life. He is circling New York city driving it's people on the subways and trains. In between he spends a lot of time in prison never having harmed anyone.
America loves it's phenomenons. Is it Asperger's disease? No one ever seems to see the child that fled into the subway to save his own life.
